ARJ21 Xiangfeng is proud of China, we can do better.

Looks like the MD90/DC-9 to me from the specs and speeds! Then again, which technology is really indigenous to China- even Chinese cars are Japanese and Korean rip offs.

This airplane was built using the jigs and tooling provided by McDonnell-Douglas for the licensed construction of the MD-90 in China. It has the same fuselage cross-section, nose and tail. COMAC claims that this is the first jet designed by the Chinese with completely independent IP rights. This is, of course, hogwash.

It's a further development of the Boeing 717
